Herefordshire School Music Conference 2021

Encore Music Service - Eras - Quaver and

Due to Covid-19, we are not be able to hold our annual Herefordshire School Music Conference as usual in 2021. Instead, we’re delighted to announce that SUE NICHOLLS will be hosting two identical webinars on the theme ‘Take a Deep Dive - Preparing for an Ofsted Deep Dive Music Subject Inspection’


Each webinar will help primary music subject leaders to understand the intent, implementation and impact of OfSTED and their Music 'Deep Dives' and give both specialist and non-specialist teachers the confidence to prepare for an Ofsted music subject inspection under the new Ofsted framework.

There is a choice of two webinar dates: Wednesday 10th or Thursday 11th February 2021. Both webinars will run from 3:45 to 5:45pm. To ensure there is plenty of time to ask questions, share ideas and seek advice, each webinar will be limited to 23 participants. Places are limited to 2 colleagues per school and allocated on a first come first served basis. To register your place(s) click below:
